I doubt it.  I believe WWE has been airing the handheld version for years so I doubt they have anything else.
Looks like WWE hadn't taken the time to find the real deal until now.  The version they just uploaded is mint-quality tv master.  It's loaded with post-interviews from the legends.  The whole thing is 50 mins.  Great hidden gem!


The interviews are 100% unedited. You get to see the interviewer and Freddie Blassie briefly discussing what he's going to say before he goes into full promo mode. Lots of zooming into noses as well.

He’s never shown on camera but the interviewer is clearly Bill Apter. Pretty strange that WWE has that footage and put it up since I can guarantee Apter did those interviews for the magazines or whatever other projects he had going on at the time and wasn’t filming that or being paid by the WWF. The interviews are short but mostly good. It’s worth going out of your way to watch. Arnold Skaaland is wearing a George Michael Sports Machine cap which I got a kick out of.

The Luger segment is listed as October 1984, but most sources have Luger debuting a year later. Is this date accurate? He should’ve been JUST finishing with football at this time and shouldn’t have been trained yet. Interestingly, Gordon Solie claims that Luger had been “wrestling around the United States for years” by this point, an odd lie when introducing a new character.

No way was Luger in during 1984.

OK so it should say October 1985.  That makes more sense.

Yes, has to be 1985. I remember mostly Luger in '86 in Florida from the Apter mags. If Luger debuted in '84, Apter would have been pimping him even earlier.

I just watched the piper v valentine match from the hidden gem section. That section is quickly becoming my favorite

I'm excited about the Hidden Gems drop tomorrow. Does anyone have an idea of what it will be or how big?

The only "leak" so far is this:

Georgia Championship Wrestling 04/07/1984 -  Ric Flair vs Jack Brisco (NWA World Heavyweight Championship)

EDIT: I'm aware that you (Qaenos) visit the same forum on Reddit that I do, but I assume not everyone else does.

I don't so please keep sharing these.  I find there's a huge deficiency in the WWE Network platform in discovering new uploads, especially of classic material that they don't heavily push.  You can't miss a new "Table for 3", but it's very hard to find some of these other drops from the '70s and '80s.  And the platform only marks the shows I've viewed for a limited amount of time, so if I go back 6 months later and try to see things I missed, it doesn't look like I've watched any of it.  It's very frustrating and after all these years and with the technology and money available to them, it's inexcusable that they haven't done a revamp and massive upgrade yet.

It's been added now. There's a good chance this will be the only Hidden Gem uploaded today.

The Network will be launching a "Network 2.0" this year. Hopefully they address many of the complaints.

At the end of this week's "Something Else to Wrestle" (their worst episode by the way, a short and fairly uninformative one on John Cena), Conrad said they pitched an idea for a very controversial episode next week and they're waiting to see if it gets approved.  Benoit maybe?

If that date is accurate this has to be Jack Brisco's last NWA title match, and one of his last NWA matches period.  He was in the WWF within 2 months I believe, and retired from the business by early '85.

Yes, this is Brisco's last NWA Title Match at least on tape. The production of this is really interesting, Ole is interviewing people in the crowd and everything, and then forgets Gary Juster's name and calls him Gary What the Fuck is your name.

Other than the Battle of Nature Boys and Battle of Atlanta, this is the best thing they've put in the vault. I don't even think this hit Georgia TV
